Book Review: "Once Upon Us" by Abhiishek Mohta is a romance fiction which narrates the highs and lows of human relationship and success. The story is a necessary creation considering modern times. It leaves an impactful message in the end, which loosely translated, propagates the honors of true love and righteousness. The author awakens a sense of awareness about long-term goals rather than short-term privileges.

The story narrates the college life and love stories behind three girls studying at London, Saatvika, Kate, and Yamini along with their respective love interests Arjun, Charles, and Shaurya (India). Their stories unfold over a game of 'Truth and Truth' at the rooftop of their dorm. The pages are filled with college life romance, dates, hangouts, and parties. Arjun always aspired to become a successful singer, however, being from a modest background he could not muster adequate funds for the release of an album. Saatvika loved him so much that she even sacrificed her semester fees and dropped out of college to support his dreams. They return to India for marriage while the rest of the friends get busy with life and work and get dispersed around the world.
